Nowadays people want more space in their rooms, and the principle of storing more to provide ample space to move around is paramount. We do not need to much stuff except it’s the most needed and the most effective. That is especially important in the kitchen. When unpacking in the new home is started, people should plan how to lay out the unpacked items to provide more space. On unpacking, it may turn that people can have second thoughts about items they used to consider essential, and they can decide to get rid of some more items, especially if the space in their new home is not as much as in their previous one. This can free space and enhance the comfort and convenience, especially in rooms where people spend most of their time, such as the living room or the kitchen.

Economical storage can be achieved in a number of respects. The first example to be given concerns dry foods. If people have packed packets of products such as flour, sugar, salt, pasta, etc. to move to their new home, on unpacking they can think of storing them in spaces such as the space between the cupboards and the ceiling, for example. Storing such dry foods in the above mentioned spaces immediately after unpacking helps to leave ample space within cupboards for the next items to be unpacked.

The kitchen is the room where people keep packing materials for their foods, such as plastic wrap, plastic bags, etc. Racks or bins attached to the inside of cabinets doors can be useful to hold such packaging materials – preparing the storage sites for packaging and storing it there immediately on unpacking can provide the convenience of having them handy whenever needed, even if the unpacking of all household belongings has not finished yet.

In the course of the unpacking, the space under the sink should be made the most use of, as it is appropriate for storing cleaning supplies, cleaning tools, garbage bags and similar items in bins or on shelves, depending on the amount of space. When that space is allocated for the storage of items to be used in cleaning, the unpacked supplies and materials mentioned above can be immediately stored there, as they can become necessary on the very same day.

Inserting some unpacked items into wire baskets hanging from shelves is another popular way of not “eating up” the free kitchen space. For example, wire baskets can be used to accommodate extra plates, extra food, etc. If people have brought over some wire baskets, unpacking them among the first things is recommended. They can also serve to accommodate unpacked items about whose appropriate place people have not made up their minds yet.

The principle of unpacking the kitchen items with a view to storing more is to spot the ways of achieving such augmented storage, and then carry out the unpacking and arrangement in conformity with this economical storage approach. After unpacking and arranging items, the space that is left in the kitchen will not be greatly reduced, thanks to the economical approach.
